How I Met Your Mother
Fans of CBS' comedies How I Met Your Mother and Two and a Half Men can't rest easy quite yet, but could have good news soon.
"We will be happy to be reporting in a few days that things will be resolved," CBS chief Nina Tassler told reporters at the winter TV previews Saturday about the possibility of a Season 9 renewal for HIMYM. "We're confident and excited that things will work out. Almost everything is complete."

CBS has announced the midseason premiere dates for returning comedy Rules of Engagement as well as freshman drama Golden Boy.
Golden Boy, which stars Theo James as a gifted cop who rises through the ranks to become the youngest police commissioner in New York City, will air a special preview on Tuesday, Feb. 26 at 10/9c following the NCIS and NCIS: Los Angeles.
Angus T. Jones
Executives at Warner Bros. TV and CBS didn't see this one coming. Nor did Two and a Half Men boss Chuck Lorre. As a matter of fact, no one did.
Angus T. Jones, who has played Men's Jake Harper since 2003, had always been a mild-mannered young star who mostly avoided press and shunned the limelight. So when a video emerged on YouTube of the 19-year-old actor saying, "If you watch Two and a Half Men, please stop. I'm on Two and a Half Men and I don't want to be on it. Please stop watching it. Please stop filling your head with filth," it stunned everyone — and became a major news story.

NBC's Mockingbird Lane enjoyed a respectable premiere Friday night. The expensive pilot-turned-Halloween special was watched by 5.44 million viewers and earned a 1.5 in the key adults 18-to-49 demographic. Unfortunately, Kitchen Nightmares' premiere only earned a 0.9, down from last season's premiere (1.6).
The networks still aren't lighting up Friday nights. Attempts this fall to reclaim the night with original scripted programming were over before they even began: Fox punted Touch to January; NBC yanked Whitney and Community at the very last minute; and the first cancellation of fall was CBS' Friday drama dud Made in Jersey.
"It all comes back to a lot of changing viewership habits," says Andy Kubitz, ABC Entertainment Group's executive vice president of program planning and scheduling. "People aren't staying around to watch TV on Fridays."
